The Technology of Making Zhang Ping Shui Xian

The process of making Zhang Ping Shui Xian comprises the stages of picking, sun withering, setting, stirring alternated with setting, fixation, rolling, compressing, and drying.

Stirring and setting are the two very important steps. It makes the tea leaves bent into each other, while the cell wall of the tea leaves will be broken, enhancing the oxidation process to some extent. During the process of oxidation, more aromatic substances will be released. The tea makers with more experience can produce a higher quality Zhang Ping Shui Xian.

After these steps, Zhang Ping Shui Xian will be compressed into small square bricks and then be slowly baked for around 5-9 days using charcoal fire.
